Exhibitors for iba 2023 can now begin the registration process for the event set to take place on October 22-26, 2023, organizers announced. Due to pandemic-related postponements and a full trade fair calendar, a total of 10 halls will be available for iba in 2023, a slightly smaller setting for the trade fair’s comeback to in-person editions.
Exhibitors can register online for their booth in Munich next year. Michael Wippler, President of the German Bakers’ Confederation said: “In the exceptional year of 2021, we connected virtually via the digital format iba.Connecting Experts. Now we can hardly wait to welcome the bakery industry back to Munich in 2023. We are now set to go and are looking forward to an iba with many multifaceted exhibitors as well as national and international visitors, who will make this trade fair a very special reunion.”
Susann Seidemann, Director of iba, also commented in a statement: “There is already a high level of demand from the market for 2023. Exhibitors can secure their exhibition space now as we are finally able to organize what the industry urgently needs: an iba that gives all those involved the opportunity to exchange ideas live and face-to-face. Then it shall be time to smell, taste and feel once more. We are back at full strength – keeping pace with the times, providing the stage for premières from across the globe.”
The hall layout
Innovations in production technology and equipment will be presented in halls A1, A2, C1, C2, B2 and B4, while packaging technologies will be displayed in hall B1. Artisan bakeries will be shown in halls A3 and B3. Raw materials and ingredients will take to the stage in neighboring halls, A4 and B4.
